Former Juventus midfielder Mohamed Sissoko did an interview with Il Bianconero and spoke about Dybala, Benatia, Szczesny and more.

“I always follow the Italian league, because I left there with good memorie. Juventus, who I’m a fan of, they weren’t playing well but they’ve found a solidity which allows them to get excellent results.”

“The players have improved a lot, especially Medhi Benatia. I think the Bianconeri will win the league, Napoli and Inter are very strong teams but they don’t have the same history.”

“Dybala, in my opinion, doesn’t have the character of Del Piero yet, even if he’s very young. If he listens to all the advice of those around him, like Nedved and Buffon he can become better than he already is. I’m not his agent, but he’s playing for one of the best teams in the world and he’d to well to stay at Juventus for another two or three years.”

“Buffon? He has been the Juventus goalkeeper since the days of Lilian Thuram, so it was still very surprising to see consecutive games where he wasn’t between the posts. Szczesny is doing very well though and I wish him well. The important thing is for Juve to keep winning.”

“Racism against Matuidi? We’re in 2018 and these things still happen…”

“It’s not nice to see people being insulted for their religion or their ethnicity. I feel very sorry for what happened to Blaise, and having played in Italy I feel even closer to him. It’s the fault of two or three ignorant people, it’s not that the whole country is racist. I read that Cagliari apologised and I think that’s a nice gesture.”
